. >> there is another story tonight regarding kathleen sebelius. she returned to capitol hill to answer questions on the problems with the obama care rollout and the law itself. the president's promise that if you like your plan you can keep it. watch this. >> the white house website says if you like your plan, you can keep it and you don't have to change a thing due to the health care law. we know that lying to congress is a crime. unfortunately lying to the american people is not. i'd just like to ask you a simple true or false question. is that statement on the white house website true? or is it false? >> sir, i think the statement -- >> is it true or false, madam secretary? >> the vast majority of american who is are insured are in the employer market, are in public plans or veterans plans. those plans have stayed in place and continued to offer benefits. >> republican john cornin of texas is a member of the senate finance committee. he's with me now. why is it impossible to get a straight answer on this critical issue to the american people? >> you know, if we were in a courtroom the judge w

tonight. mike emanuel looks at kathleen sebelius on capitol hill again today. carl cameron on how obama care impacted last night's elections and how the gop plans to capitalize on it. but we begin with chief white house correspondent ed henry on that unexpected and pretty long meeting for this white house. hi, ed. >> reporter: good evening. a democratic source tells me tonight that some of the senators in this meeting with the president floated the idea of a delay of up to one year for enrollment in fines. the president did not agree to that. but i'm told these senators felt it was a constructive meeting. he listened. the big question now is, is there going to be a delay of a few months or something like that? president obama conferred late today with michael bennett just moments after they wrapped up a dramatic closed-door meeting with 15 senate democrats facing the voters in 2014 who are nervous that anger over obama care will knock them out of office. one democratic source familiar with the meeting told fox it was feisty because, quote, candidly, a lot of pent-up frustration among se

. a better way to save. ally bank. your money needs an ally. . >> kathleen sebelius was talking more on the failed health care roll out. in the concession speech, he repeatedly hammered it. >> this race goes down to the wire because of obama care. that message will go out across america tonight. this administration told us that virginians could keep their health insurance and their doctors and their costs wouldn't rise under obama care. that was not true. they knew it wasn't true. we were lied to by our own government in its effort to restrict our liberties. >> joined now with the report and also a fellow university of chicago institute. the editor of the report and a contributing writer for roll call. amy, give me more first take on what you learned yesterday that tells you something about 2013. >> the electorate in virginia mirrored the electorate in 2012 in terms of dem kbrf graphics. the president won by four points and auliffe by points. when you turn outlooks similar to the way it looked in a presidential election, that's good for democrats. i think the health care message will
's not like they are probing into kathleen sebelius, her private business. we paid for this thing. this is our website. we paid for it, the american taxpayer. and our representatives said to the administration how much are we getting? how many people are we getting? how is our product that we paid for working? and they refuse to tell us. and now we know why. because we've got -- we've gotten this from darrell issa the committee on oversight and government reform has release this and for the first time now we got the numbers. now it all becomes clear why everyone has been so very guarded about the numbers, chris. >> distract, delay, deny. wait until the news gets better and then you come back and say what's going on. that's been the case in politics long before barack obama was president of the united states. but that's a specialty of this administration. we've seen it on benghazi. we've seen it on a number of scandals facing the administration. they tried it on this one. unfortunately for them the stakes are too huge, too many millions of americans are involved. too much coverage is being disr
at increased risk. also, hhs secretary kathleen sebelius is refusing to answer her questions, including, specifically, the number of people who have enrolled in new hampshire's health care exchange now. joining me now is kelly aoit. thank you for joining us. >> good morning, candy. thank you. >> there is a movement by senator lindsey graham to block all of the president's nominees until survivors of the benghazi attack are allowed to come and testify to various committees. are you on board with that tactic? >> well, candy, we've written several times, not only secretary kerry, but also the president asking for the survivors to be made available to congress to get to the bottom of this. i understand we've been brushed off many times. i understand senator gram is going to be speaking to the administration about this, trying to come up cooperatively to address this issue but it's not acceptable that they have not been made available and to say that because there is an on going investigation in terrorism, that would preclude oversight by the congress in any terrorism case. >> right. >> incl
. >> still have full confidence in kathleen sebelius? >> i think kathleen sebelius under tremendously difficult circumstances over the last four and a half years has done a great job in setting up the insurance markets. there's a good product out there for people to get. she wasn't our i.t. person. i think she'd be the first to admit that if we had to do it all over again, that there would have been a whole lot of questions asked in terms of how this thing was working. but my priority right now is to get it fixed. and ultimately -- >> is she still the right person to do it? >> ultimately the buck stops with me. i'm the president. this is my team. if it's not working, it's my job to get it fixed. >> to discuss the interview, joining me now are congressman emanuel cleaver and ryan grim from the "huffington post." >> good to be with you, reverend. >> congressman, the president says his job is to get it fixed. what's your reaction? >> i think the president set the right tone. he was not argument or backing away from responsibility. and i think the greatest challenge to anyone when somethi
%. kathleen sebelius had the nerve to say the marketplace is working. if they were in a real marketplace and they had that kind of sales rate they would be going out of business. this is not working. >> they are in a position where they have to get 5 million -- that's the number that was cancelled. they have to get those 5 million signed up for insurance before a month from now. if they don't sign up by december 15 they don't have coverage january 1. according to our map, that means they need 156,000 sign-ups a day for the next 32 days just to break even. that's not counting the original 7 million they said they needed to make obama care work. >> even worse than that. you are being generous. they promised the american people -- president obama, november 6, by the end of the month we anticipate it will be working the way it is supposed to. by the end of november they promised the website would be working. starting december 1. everybody can go to health care.com and it will work like priceline. they have to have everybody signed up by the 15th. that's 15 days. 388,000 people a day they hav
kathleen sebelius addressing all of this right now in a phone teleconference. we are on top of it all. welcome everyone i'm neil cavuto. if this were stock investment no wiewn would know what to do about it or with it. hey, rich. >> good afternoon, neil. big number here is 27 million. that's the number of people the administration says actually went to the web site. but fk lee at the totals here only 106,000. federal and state exchanges have actually followed through and selected plans. we don't know why that many people weren't able to select plans because they decided not to, too expensive or couldn't get through because of technical problems. 975,000 says the administration made it through and did not select plans and fewer than republicans responding 106,000 number is actually inflated. he says that includes the number of people who have essentially put plans into their shopping cart. and on a day on capitol hill where we were discussing obamacare throughout the day, there were plenty of references to amazon.com. >> have you ever shopped on amazon.com? >> yes, sir. >> the amazon e
would be able to do so later today. kathleen sebelius will have a 3:00 p.m. phone call with the press where she may release the first official numbers. jay carney saying the president has in strubstructed his team w regard to what kind of fix the obama administration may have for the health care debach the thus far. he went onto say it will be about options with regard to individuals who have had their plans cancelled because of the transition. we will continue to follow this for you. in the meantime we need to change gears now. because the 911 calls at a wild cat sanctuary have been released. i want to warn you that some of the sounds are disturbing. trace fwgallagher has the detai. >> reporter: they rescue abused and unwanted big cats. the opener is the one who is the one who discovered the body inside the enclosure. i will play both parts of the 911 call. you can hear when he calls he is inside of the enclosure because he is yelling at the cougars. >>> yeah, that is when he realized how bad her wounds were. one of them had blood on its fur. listen to when he realizes that it is too
services secretary kathleen sebelius is on the road again today making a stop in memphis to promote what appears to be a very beleaguered health care law. rich is in washington with more. >> good afternoon, neil. she's addressing this report released by house government and oversight reform committee. republicans there citing a document from the administration and contractors after the first day that healthcare.gov went live saying six people enrolled in obama care. only six on day one approximately 100 on the second day according to this document and fewer than 248 on the second day. some of the problems with the website high capacity they said, direct enrollment not working, va system not connecting, only six enrollments occurred so far with five different issuers. hhs secretary kathleen sebelius said they still don't have those numbers. >> i don't know what numbers were gathered to get the first two days of enrollment and where they came from and if it is federal enrollment or state enrollment, but we will be giving comprehensive figures about nationwide enrollment who is in the feder
, kathleen sebelius was back on the hill. >> users are receiving far fewer error messages and time-outs. and we're now able to process nearly 17,000 reg strants per hour with almost no errors. for millions of americans, delay is not an option. people's lives depend on this. we discussed security as part of the overall operations on a regular basis with the operations team, but no one i would say suggested that the risk outweigh the importance of moving forward. >> let's go right to luke russert in washington. luke, not quite the same fireworks we saw during sebelius's first round of testimony, but what did you make of the oversight there today? >> that's to be expected. the senate is the house of lords as compared to the house of commons. but what we did learn today, number one, is that kathleen sebelius resisted bipartisan attempts to perhaps shut down the website until they can get it fixed so it wouldn't be any more confusing for those who want to enroll. you saw in the bite there, there was no point in doing that because it is easier to fix the website while it was up. we also
. meantime, embattled health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius will go before the senate finance committee next week to answer more questions. i'm jami colby and i'll be back at the top of the on hour for america's news headquarters. >>> it's hard to believe, but barbara walters is in her final season at "the view." first at nbc's "today show." then at abc, co-host of 2020 and countless special and a woman who has interviewed presidents and prime ministers and every celebrity on the planet just about. but i think i've detected a change in tone in her highly popular daytime show, so i began with that when i visited the manhattan offices of "the view." barbara walters, thank you for letting us into your luxurious dressing room. >> with no window, yeah. >> nice curtains. >> we cover everything up with curtains. >> during the national melodrama over the national shutdown, obama care, i didn't see much of that on "the view." has washington gotten too boring? >> "the view" is a daytime show. a lot of people get their news from "the view," but it's supposed to be entertaining, upbeat.
access. >> kathleen sebelius? >> under tremendously difficult circumstances over the last 4 1/2 years has done a great job in setting up the insurance market so that there is a good product for people to get. kathleen sebelius doesn't like code. she was not our it person. she would be the first to admit that if we had to do it all over again, there would have been a whole lot more questions asked in terms of how this thing is working. my priority right now is to get it fixed. ultimately -- >> she is still the right person? >> ultimately the buck stops with me. i'm the president and this is my team. if it's not working it's my job to get it fixed. >> a lot more and other issues throughout the hour. i have to sneak in a break, but they would allow plans that existed on the individual market as of this year to stay in effect through 2014. he responded to the president in the following statement. an apology is certainly an order, but what americans want to hear is that the president will keep his promise. the president is sincerely sorry he misled the american people, the least he can do is s
's aversion. >> kathleen sebelius said before congress they are not going to extend, but the white house isn't really closing the door to that one. jay carney asked always says november 30th is the date this needs to get fixed by. so my sense is if you get to march -- they don't want to box themselves in. they want to leave as much time as possible before they say, okay, yes, we're delaying the penalty or extending the enrollment. >> jonathan, for a lot of democrats it feels like we're on a roller coaster in the dark. you know there's another turn coming. >> even a corkscrew. >> you might be going upside down. enrollment numbers coming out next week. the projected target number for the end of november was 800,000. that's a big number. you're already seeing kathleen sebelius say the numbers are going to be considerably lower. we know the first day of enrollment had six people. the question is how much can you tamp down -- do democrats in the white house need to work harder tamping down any expectations that anybody enrolled at all? >> if they have any expectations at all anymore. because ther
. so you can. >>> the >>> the health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius is back on capitol hill testifying this time before the senate finance committee about obama. bertha coombs is live with the latest on this particular hearing. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, simon. max baucus, the chairman of the house, the senate finance committee, this morning saying he was disappointed in how the roll-out had proceeded. he had said -- he was the one who famously said last april when kathleen sebelius was here that he was worried this would become a train wreck and there are many who would describe it as much. he did say in his opening statement that he didn't think it was time to change the person at the head of the situation, he didn't think that kathleen sebelius should step down now in the midst of the crisis. >> some people have called for your resignation. to borrow kennedy's word, with we cannot fix the blame for the past. you need to stay at hhs and help get the system working. >> he said he was still very concerned about the administration's comments about all of th
picture of a keg. >> that was republican congressman grilling kathleen sebelius this week. he was referring to an ad campaign. this features a college student doing a keg stand captioned don't tap into that beer money to cover your medical bills. joining me is adam fox, director of the strategic management for the colorado consumer health initiative. adam, it's good to have you here. what was your reaction when that happened on capitol hill? when the congressman was trying to get kathleen sebelius to either give her approval or disapproval of this style of ad? >> well, you know, i don't think -- it really doesn't have anything to do with the secretary, because it wasn't coming from colorado's state-based marketplace much less the federal marketplace. so she really had no idea that this was going to be happening. this was really something that we were doing to try to raise awareness among young adults. >> all right. so connect for health colorado says 3,164 people enrolled as of october 29th. explain to us the campaign and the minds behind this. obviously you look like a young
and human services secretary kathleen sebelius again on capitol hill today being grilled over the obama care rollout difficulty. >> this as the president heads to texas tonight to talk up his signature law but bertha coombs joins us with today's edition of how obama care turns. bertha. >> bill, you know, there are some in the hearing today calling for kathleen sebelius's head right to her face. interestingly enough the centers for medicare and medicaid services cms announcing its chief information officer tony trunkle will be stepping down effective next week. he oversaw the payment over i.t. services and he was according to some documents one of the officials who helped to prove the delay of a full security assessment of healthcare.gov. miss sebelius certainly got a lot of heat from both sides. max baucus warning her that if the website is not going to be fully operational at the end of the month she had better not wait until the last minute to tell congress and the american people. among the most contentious back and forth questioning coming from texas senator john cornyn over if you like

a national picture from kathleen sebelius in a couple of weeks. but, in terms of, you you know, how many people signed on, how many people go on to look, only four actually signed up right now. when do you expect to get better numbers in delaware? >> well, to be clear, the four is simply the number of people who have enrolled through the help of these marketplace guides. >> got it. >> officials here in delaware say the actual number is higher. they won't say exactly what that number is. but i have been told it could be around 50 or so. but they won't release official enrollment numbers until next week. >> that's not a lot on othe way to 7 million nationwide that they are hoping to sign up. what are you hearing from people about how the system is going for them? are there a lot more trying to get on and they can't get on? delaware is obviously one of the states that has its own state exchange. not every state does. it was supposed to be a little bit easier in the states that actually did start their own, right? >> well, actually, delaware has a partnership exchange with the federal govern
confidence in kathleen sebelius? >> i think she under tremendous ly difficult circumstances over the last 4 1/2 years has done a great job in setting up the insurance markets so there is a good product out there for people to get. kathleen sebelius doesn't write code, she wasn't our i.t. person. i think she would be the first to admit that if we had to do it all over again that there would have been a whole lot more questions that were asked in terms of how this thing is working. but my priority right now is to get it fixed. and -- you know ultimately. >> is she still the right person to do. >> buck stops with me. it's my team. >> alex wagner, joy reid, and steve, here to analyze what the president had to say about health care. later for the first time we hear president obama talk about whether or not he wanted to drop joe biden as his runningmate in favor of hillary clinton? lamb to the slaughter. mom's baked cookies but he'll be lucky to make it inside. and here's the play. oh, dad did not see this coming.

this to happen all along because he is on the record along with harry reid, kathleen sebelius, tom harkin saying obamacare is a way station on the way to single-payer. i don't have a thought the disaster would have been the way it did and probably happened so fast. if this president was really sincere, there is an immediate fix making its way through congress right now in a bipartisan way which is a bill that would restore the health plans allowing americans to keep the plans they like and they can afford. back in 2010 republicans put forward a bill to do exactly that, making sure guarantees were in place. they said absolutely not. they may change their tune now, but i'm not so sure they will move in that direction. gregg: you saw jay carney a moment ago, you almost feel sorry for him because he is trying to justify that which is arguably unjustifiable are. he minimizes it, it is just a small% of american people. that small comfort to the millions of folks losing their policies and paying something bigger. this is only going to get worse? >> it is. this just affects about 15 million people. 15 m
the president if he had confidence in kathleen sebelius and the president had an answer, but he did not answer mr. tood's question. >> i think he said i think she would be the first to admit if we had to do it all over again she would be the first one to ask how things are working. >> he did not answer whether he has confidence for kathleen sebelius who has taken responsibility for the stinkin' website but with this particular catastrophe, with the computers -- >> if i thought my signature plan was rolling out, i wouldn't be golfing the sunday before. i would just sit there and go can we run through a test run here before i get on my polo shirt and go outside. >> the past isn't looking good for anybody, including the president. i >>heather: at this point for the benefit of those -- >> i hope for the benefit of those like bill elliott and those in danger of losing their policy something is done. still on the site as of this morning, i'm not sure if this was put on there again to say we are keeping it. this type we -- this time we are going to keep our promise. if you like your plan, you can kee
of incoherrence going on. we heard deinousiation from kathleen sebelius and jay carney saying that the upton bill is dangerous and damaging to the market and infeasible logistically and then yesterday, the president announced a fix where he is imposing by decree most of what the upton bill accomplishes. it is puzzling and the president's credibility is shot on this and he earned every bit of this problem. >> the numbers on the screen are to allow the vote. the democrats vote numbers are not on the upton bill but we'll bring that to you. julie, we understand today, the president is meeting with the ceo's and executives from the insurance companies and shbt shouldn't he have done that sonar. yesterday when he came out with the fix. they put out a letter actually the president's fix threatens to destabilize the market. >> as i said in the beginning, i am not supportive of the president's behavior and no excuse to allow the debacle it got to and no means am i suggesting that the president is on top or the white house or people working for him did a good job implementing the signature accomplishments.
been telling you. it may be worse. the news was so bad, kathleen sebelius didn't do it in front of cameras. she delivered the news over the phone. >> as of this first period, 106,000 americans have enrolled in qualified health plans through the market place. >> of course she avoided admitting of those 106,000 enrollees, just a quarter of them were done via the federal government's website. less than 27,000 enrollees. fewer than the number of folks at fenway park was sold out in the game. the state-run websites and california's exchange alone signed up nearly 10,000 more people. they believe there is condensation in the glass. the piece of positive spin is nearly a million potential applicants are in the pipeline. >> we can reasonably expect these numbers will grow substantially over the next five months as they did in massachusetts that enrolled only .3% or 123 people in the first month. >> still it's hard to look at yesterday's congressional hearing with the white house chief technology officer todd park feeling fully confident that a new deadline on a work website november 30t
for those democrats to the support. earlier today, health and human services secretary, kathleen sebelius told reporters since october 1, 106,185 people have enrolled. 79,000 enrolled through state exchanges. and about 27,000 enrolled through that federal exchange. that has the had so many problems. that is about 21% of what the obama administration had expected to enroll before the exchanges were open. another 975,407 people have completed applications for insurance but have not yet made the purchase. many of those people are shopping for family plans. and the administration estimates that is coverage for 1.5 million people. an additional $396,261 people have signed up for medicaid. secretary sebelius insisted today enrollment under the affordable care act is comparable to early days of enrollment under the health care reform law that massachusetts enacted in 2006 under governor romney. >> we can reasonably expect the numbers will grow substantially over the next five months as they did in massachusetts which enrolled only .3%. or 123 people in its first month. we know from experience in
: on a conference call with reporters, human health and services kathleen e sebelius spoke with them. >> today we're confident we're on track to achieve that. if that changes, we will certainly let you know. >> reporter: under questioning from south carolina republican trey gowdy, the white house todd park offers no guarantees. >> when will it be operational to your satisfaction? >> well, we have a goal that the team is pursuing with tremendous intensity. >> how many more weeks? i'm looking for a number. >> we're looking to have the site functioning by the end of this month. >> another rinkle, four times as many americans signed up entirely funded by the government have signed up for private insurance overtime that could affect the financial stability of the law. later today they'll meet with senate democrats. for the first time they announced they will open to a legislati legislative, not administrative fix. charlie and norah? >> thank you, major. with us, cbs political analyst john dickerson, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> let's begin with the numbers. what do they tell us and what
exchanges. but the federal exchange, no money. in fact, juliette reports that kathleen sebelius couldn't find enough money to keep programmers under her wing and so what ended up happening was all of the responsibilities were fragmented to several offices in different locations. so what ends up happening is the train wreck that the republicans predicted would happen came true largely in part because of what republicans did to try to derail the law. now, that's not to say that there weren't mistakes, miscalculations, political timidity on the white house's part. but at least the white house is trying to do something affirmative, do something positive for people who don't have health insurance. the republicans have been trying to sabotage a law with no alternative to replace it with. >> and what you said just now interestingly enough seems to be where the american people are, jonathan. because if you look at the polls, the public still wants to give obama care a chance. 47% want to keep or expand the law. only 24% want to see the law repealed. and 13% say they want the law repealed and r
kathleen sebelius for more. good to see you tonight. as the president was out there with the 800 number he knew that basically was just another way of sending people to the website ultimately. >> it's a facade. it's one of several facades, megyn. the president already has a nobel prize for peace. i think he's shooting for one in fiction to send people to the mail instead of the website when you know you are going in exactly the same queue is to create an appearance that everything is going swimmingly when you know otherwise. >> why can't there be honesty? we picked it up with marc. why can't he say, i didn't tell the truth or broke a promise. i broke a critical promise and millions of american peoples are hurting because of it. this is what i will do. we don't have that. what i said. this is what he said. what we have said was if you had a policy that didn't change. that's not what he said. now the thing about, oh, you can just call the 800 number. that just directs people back to the website. >> i could have sworn he said "period" at the end and now he's addededed a lengthy footnote. if a
. and these regulations that kathleen sebelius had pushed through shortly after obama care became law. hobbling the ability of people to keep their plan, as the president claimed they would. you read it. you saw it. and you went to the senate floor to do what? >> i took a bill to repeal that particular provision so that people would be able to keep their insurance, that they were promised they could keep. this presidential mantra that goes on and on, the democrats believe. and as a result they defeated my repeal amendment. and so we're still stuck at this point with the same thing. >> how many democrats voted in favor of your proposal? >> every one of the democrats voted in favor of it. that puts america at risk and it should put their jobs at risk. >> they voted against your attempt to fix this regulation? >> that is right. my attempt to make what the president was saying come true, he didn't like it. he likes the mantra, the mantra was still on the white house website at 4:00 this afternoon, saying if you like what you have got, you can keep it. and you don't have to do a thing to keep your p
